Shooter went to GOP baseball practice with list of names

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:24

Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said Scalise's prognosis had improved considerably over the past few days, adding the congressman had faced an "imminent risk of death" after he was shot Wednesday in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise had been awake immediately after the shooting, Sava said, but had gone into shock by the time he arrived at the hospital.

Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone.

Scalise was fielding ground balls at second base Wednesday when he was shot at a practice for the annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said.

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

But Scalise still faces multiple surgeries, a prolonged hospital stay and a lengthy recovery, Sava stressed. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in".

Speaking earlier Friday in Miami, Trump said Scalise "took a bullet for all of us" when he was shot.

"We fully expect him to be able to walk. hopefully, run".


Scalise will need more operations for his injuries, but doctors can't yet predict how many are necessary.

Witnesses said the shooting would have been a "massacre" if not for the Capitol Police officers on duty as part of Scalise's security detail and the gunfight that ensued as local law enforcement arrived. Brooks said the list was short and the other names he was told of were also GOP congressmen. Hodgkinson died after being shot by police.

"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in a statement Friday.

Hodgkinson had a history of posting angry messages against Mr Trump and other Republicans on social media.

Capitol Police Special Agent Crystal Griner was shot in the ankle but was recovering at the hospital.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

In a statement Saturday, Matt Mika's family says he will remain in the intensive care unit at George Washington University Hospital at least through the weekend.
